Speaking of Kitty Art

We are the proud owners of some real live, honest to goodness Kitty Art!  A couple weeks ago the mom bought one of Quint's (of Colehaus Cats) paintings.

 Lovely centered photo, courtesy of the mom.

We didn't think to blog about it, but we saw another kitty blogged about their painting, so we thought we'd show you ours, too.  The other painting was done in similar colors but on a dark background and we really liked it.  We are thinking it would look nice with ours as a set, so another might be in our future.

The little card that came with our painting.
How cute!

It comes with a little card and write up about the artist!  Best yet, a donation is made to help less fortunate kitties.

The Coles sent the mom a lovely email telling her how Quint starting painting, which the mom was too rude to answer.  Oh, she'll tell you how busy she is, and make all kinds of excuses about how she over extended herself saying she'd help this or that bean, and even how she couldn't blog every day last week, but it doesn't change the fact!

For those interested, but didn't know, Quint has an interesting story.  He started young, painting the bathroom mirror with toothpaste every day, then moved on to painting walls with kitty litter.  Probably used, we bet, but the Coles were too polite to say.  Or at least, WE would have used used kitty litter, just to see the mom's reaction.

Lesser people, like the mom, would have closed the bathroom door so she wouldn't have to clean the mirror every day, but the Coles gave Quint his very own paints and studio!  How cool is that?  And the rest is history.

We thought this was a sunny, happy story to share with you at the start of a new week.  So enjoy, and have a great day!

We love Quint's art, too! We have one of what we think is the same series that we just got a frame for and hung on the wall. We should blog that sometime soon, too!

We love Quint's paintings. The mom always says she's gonna get one for us, but she hasn't yet. Sheesh. Maybe seeing yours will push her to actually do it. :)

That is a beautiful painting and I love the story about Quint.

I think we just changed Annie's profile pic because summer is almost over but thanks for your note about her sunglasses. :)

Oh Oui Oui and kitties, thank you for sharing your Quint art with the world! Quint was thrilled when we read him your post, and the comments, wow! Thank you, everyone! Good thing he doesn't let any of this go to his head! Quint's such a well-grounded boy.
